Tribune and Blago

Now that's a juicy scandal. And what about that Blago hair?? Puts Elvis to shame.

Not being from Chicago, I am not going to wade in the murky waters of Chicago politics, except to say that the whole mess has given the Chicago Tribune a new lease on life. Perhaps this extends to all newspapers by showing how print can still chew on a meaty news bone. Apparently, the Trib has been ragging on Blago for quite a while.

Suddenly, newspapers are relevant again.

For now.

Let's remember that this is the same week in which Jon Stewart reportedly said, "Newspapers are black and white and all over." Ouch.
